Oh I know where you're coming from. Just addressing a couple points. They exist because there's a demand, and they're the best group filling that demand. Sometimes they blow my mind, other times I'm satisfied with tape nerd candy elective sets.

@ColdRain - 88 GD trying to do 72 GD sounds pretty darn good to me! Some folks only ever got to see the 90s Dead and ya know what, DSO on average are better than that... not saying much, I know.

WTF, I'll say that Mrs Tell and I enjoyed seeing DSO some many yrs back MORE than the last time we saw the DEAD. 1982. She never forgave me for making her go...to the DEAD that last time.

Of course, I didn't go to DSO expecting the DEAD, I was going for better than the 80s or 90s DEAD.

;)

(tongue only partly in cheek...truly).

My wife had the exact opposite reaction. DSO bored her to tears while the GD (even in '95) brought her to tears. The emotional impact that music had disappeared the instant Jerry split. Thank god for all the recordings.

I'd take my last two shows in '95 over everything and anything I've seen since.

The Zen Tricksters were my favorite GD band...till Phil cherry picked them apart.
